After another year of Covid, masks, isolation, remote work and uncertainty; some of our holiday traditions may be a bit different this season. Many of us eagerly look forward to reconnecting with family and friends this Christmas and seeing their smiling faces. Others may be health challenged, alone or missing a loved one no longer with us.
So rather than focus entirely on gifts, traditions, or past holidays, I encourage you to make this season one of joy and gratitude. Joy is in the heart and soul; it runs deep and overflows to others. Gratitude is how we express our love, devotion and commitment towards those who mean the most to us. Being thankful is a feeling and being grateful is an action!
This season let’s choose to be joyful and grateful to everyone we touch. Be a light of encouragement and hope to your family, co-workers, customers and friends. Let’s not forget our health care workers, restaurant servers, police and other essential folks. I wish to express my gratitude to all of you, my followers and clients for the honor of working with your staff and your much-appreciated business.
Let’s bring out the eggnog, sing our favorite carols and most of all, remember the reason for the season!
